Violation ExplanationOfficial Report Wording, Item #28
Proper disposal of sewage & waste water. Disposal system adequate, toilets provided (10 pts)
PUBLIC HEALTH REASON
Adequate sewage and waste water disposal is a basic requirement for all food operations. Waste water contains high levels of disease-causing microorganisms. Proper disposal of human waste greatly reduces the risk of fecal contamination. This prevision is intended to ensure that waste will not contaminate ground surfaces or water supplies, pollute surface waters or allow rodents or insects to serve as vectors of disease. Food establishments must dispose of all waste water into a sanitary sewer. Both public and onsite waste water treatment (septic) sewage systems must be maintained to prevent the backup of sewage into the establishment or on to the ground outside.
